The chief minister told the MD SSWMA that the cleaning work in South and East might be better but still citizens of the area were not happy.

“You must develop a complaint center to receive complaints against non-sweeping so that they could be addressed,” he directed MD SSWMA.

The MD told the chief minister that there was a complaint center at SSWMA. At this the chief minister directed him to publicize the complaint center numbers so that citizen could file their complaints.
